BepiColombo, the joint European-Japanese mission, performed an Earth flyby on 10 April 2020 to adjust its trajectory en route to its destination, Mercury. The spacecraft, equipped with three 'selfie' cameras, captured a series of stunning images of the planet, and was also photographed by astronomers, including amateurs, on Earth.
